Before and throughout college, I changed my major roughly five times. It was such a tough decision for me, but I finally landed on the perfect one for me and that was education. Here are the reasons why being an education major is hands down the best:
1. We get to help others
A huge reason I stepped into this degree was because I knew I would get to make a difference - small or large.
2. We play a big part in how the future will look like
Did you ever think about that? Teachers get to help shape the kids of the future by how the classroom is run.
3. Studying education makes you appreciate education
I have always loved school, but not as much as I do now. I have found a strong passion for education and the value it holds.
4. We get to be role models
Some of those kids who walk through the door won't have anyone at home rooting for them, or they will, but your encouragement and push will help drive them to succeed.
5. We get to create a fun and effective learning environment
I have learned what I do and do not want my classroom environment to be just through the teachers that I have had.
6. No one can do my job without the teaching license
This for me has created job security knowing that no one can take my job without also having gone through the education, student teaching, and testing that I have.
I am honored, to say the least, to be able to be a teacher one day. It is something that I cherish and will work my hardest at being one of the greats.
